    Player Outlook

    Even though he missed nearly all of the final quarter of the 2015 season, it's fair to say Mark Teixeira had a strong comeback year for the Yankees. He adapted to frequent shifts, not by pulling the ball less, but rather by blasting it out of the park. In just 111 games, Teixeira hit 31 home runs -- his highest total in four years. There are still concerns heading into 2016, including Teixeira's recovery from the stress fracture in his right leg and the emergence of Greg Bird as a potential replacement at first base. He falls just outside the top 12 at his position and will likely slide to the middle rounds of standard mixed league drafts.

    • Yankees catcher John Ryan Murphy took grounders at first base Tuesday, the New York Post reports. With rookie Greg Bird struggling against left-handed pitching and Mark Teixeira out for the season, the Yankees are looking for a right-handed option to potentially see some starts at first base. If the team feels comfortable enough with his defensive abilities, Murphy could draw a start there either in the final week of the regular season or in the playoffs.
